Yes, she's right, but -- there's a lot of room between perfection and crap. I've never written anything so bad that somebody didn't love it. That doesn't mean the story didn't need work. It means it had good stuff in it. Certainly after it's done you don't want to keep going back to it, but deciding when a particular work is ready is a lot more complicated than she makes it sound. Especially for somebody like me whose main process is bottom-up design and iterative development.
